Interior of Tokyo International Forum

The Tokyo International Forum (東京国際フォーラム, Tōkyō Kokusai Fōramu) is a multi-purpose exhibition center in Tokyo, Japan. The complex is generally considered to be in the Yurakucho business district due to its adjacency to the Yurakucho Station. However, it is administratively in the Marunouchi district.

Tokyo International Forum was built on the site of the Tokyo City Hall, before it was moved to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Nishi-Shinjuku.

Background[edit]

One of its halls seats 5,000. In addition to seven other halls, it includes exhibition space, a lobby, restaurants, shops, and other facilities.

Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly and completed in 1996, it features swooping curves of steel truss and glass; the outside is shaped like an elongated boat.

Standing between Tokyo Station and Yūrakuchō Station, its address is in Marunouchi, Chiyoda, on the site formerly occupied by Tokyo City Hall (before it moved to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in 1991).

On the first floor, facing in the direction of Edo Castle (now the Imperial Palace), is a bronze sculpture of Ōta Dōkan.[1]
